Build with buildpacks
You can build your projects on Northflank using buildpacks . This does not require you to supply a Dockerfile as a buildpack will try to automatically determine how to build your project. You must specify the build context (root by default).
Select buildpack as the build type when creating your service, or change an existing service from the build options page.
You can select from a list of popular buildpacks under advanced build settings if you require support for other languages. Check the provider's documentation for more information on base images and language versions.

- Heroku builder stacks are compatible with the Cloud Native Buildpacks specification
- Cloud Native Buildpack stack samples are not recommended for use in production.
You can use multiple buildpacks together to provide support for more complex builds. For example, you might use one buildpack to install Java, and another buildpack to use Maven to build your application. The builder will run through all the buildpacks to identify the correct ones to use in the build.
You can specify buildpacks in one of the following formats:
|URL||Needs to resolve to a tar.gz file|
|Github URL||May further specify a tag, branch or commit ID using the format |
|Image||Can use |
|CNB registry resource|
If a string does not include a scheme prefix (ex.
docker://) the buildpack type can be inferred from the format:
- If it looks like a Docker ref, it will be treated as a
- If it looks like a buildpack Registry ID, it will be treated as a
